Torganics Market Garden as well as how to care for your soil workshop.

*Access to Land 101 - get over an hour with our access to land experts 
in whatever area interests you most - starting allotments with Allan 
Cavill from the National Society of Allotment & Leisure Gardeners, 
accessing land from public landowners with Mary Clear, community 
supported agriculture schemes, community gardens and more with the 
Community Land Advisory Service. There is no such thing as a silly 

*Skilling Up Somerset - interested in land and food related training? 
Fancy being part of a future training coop or growing mentor scheme in 
Somerset? Now is your chance to give your feedback, talk to others 
working in education and more looking at how we can re-learn the skills 
we need to grow food locally.

*Growing change - are you involved in community work in Somerset? Want 
to know the facts about food poverty locally and what we can do about 
it? Interested in therapeutic horticulture? Want to share best practice 
& ideas of how to overcome the challenges we're facing?

*How can we build a local food movement in Somerset - where next for the
growing local food network? What can we do in our communities? What 
needs to happen now? Listen to ideas from across Somerset & beyond, 
including from successful groups in London & Bristol and have a  chance
to be part of the discussion.
